Broken Drain Cover

Reported via desktop in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 09:53, Tuesday 23 August 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3774310.

Drain cover is broken and has fallen down to bottom of drain, resulting in a hole into which vehicle / cycle wheels (and even pedestrians) could fall. Fallen section of the drain cover has been retrieved and placed back in position however it is very loose and will likely fall in again - note that part of the mating half of the drain cover has snapped off and hence the two parts no longer mate together properly. You'll also note from the photo that the drain cover enclosure is collapsing down into the carriageway - this is likely the root cause of the problem.

  • Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.

    Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.

    We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.

    During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.

    Thank you for your patience.
